Mustapha can be reached on his personal handle @Mdiyaolhaqq It was great having him share his week with us.
Back in 2019, I worked with @ghanacodeclub to launch the first AI Curriculum, curated to practically teach children fundamental concepts in Artificial Intelligence. The results? ObjectAI, an image recognition app and EmoAI, an emotion recognition app, both with speech synthesis.

My organization @okuafo is on a mission to democratize #AI for rural farmers for precision agriculture. We are doing this in a number of ways, I’ll be highlighting our journey so far and tools we’re adding to our workflow to ensure farmers are better informed.
Coffee Break! #DidYouKnow The active cultivation of coffee started in Ghana in the mid-eighteenth century when the early missionaries settled in Ghana. It is mostly cultivated by smallholder farmers and in a few plantations scattered in the cocoa growing regions of Ghana.
Good morning all! The vibe when you arrive at work.

Swing dance band is definitely a more accurate descriptor. Thanks for this. The Kumasi Trio recording was circa, 1927/8. twitter.com/Sunudoe/status…
Rex Lawson and E.C. Arinze both split from the Empire Band to form their own bands; in fact Rex Lawson used one of E.T.'s numbers as his signature tune and Dan Acquaye, vocalist for the Tempos, was his idol.
By the mid-50s, the Tempos' continual touring was having an influence, and Nigerian dance orchestras began to incorporate highlife into their repertoire. Victor Olaiya, originally a trumpeter with Bobby Benson, followed suit when he formed the Lido Band.
When E.T. first went to Nigeria in 1950, highlife was hardly known outside the boundaries of Ghana and even by 1953, Nigerian dance bands such as Sammy Akpabot's Band, the Empire Band and Bobby Benson's Band were still playing mostly swing and ballroom music.
The Nigerian trips enabled the band to turn professional in 1953. E.T. even set up a second band in 1954, the Star Rockets, to carry on at home while he was away.
a year by station wagon, usually stopping of along the way at Lome in Togo, and Cotonou and Porto Novo in Dahomy (now Benin). They stayed for up to three months at a time, as Nigerian immigration law imposed a ninety-day limit on such visits.
Both times the Tempos received a tremendous welcome, for although highlife was beginning to become popular in Nigeria through recordings, there were as yet no dance bands there. From this time on, the Tempos began to make regular trips to Nigeria, traveling once or twice
The Tempos made many trips to Nigeria beginning in 1950 with Kelly and Warren. In 1953, with Spike Anyankor and Dan Acquaye new in the line up, the whole band drove to Lagos and stayed two weeks with the brother of the famous Nigerian dance band leader Bobby Benson.
Accra Orchestra became the best-known prewar orchestra, and many of Ghana's top musicians played in it, including E.T., Joe Kelly, and Tommy Gripman.
